Nevets wrote:But no, he is not a lecturer at Groningen University in Holland, as he claims.

Forgot to mention, but the university is in Groningen, not in either of the provinces with Holland in their name.

Thomas Eshuis wrote:I guess Nevets never noticed, btw, that I have several followers that are researching at the RUG.

Yes, I noticed eleven followers when I followed up on the links Nevets cited. I actually clicked on some of them, one of whom was Kees Teszelszky, also listed as a member of the University of Groningen's Department of History. He sports 22 published research items, and I checked some of them out too. One of them is The Making and Uses of the Image of Hungary and Transylvania, volume 3 (of 3) of A Divided Hungary in Europe. It does exist, and it is not a vanity publication. Isbn: 9781443866880 Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing. If you have enough interest and funds to buy it, you could acquire a hardcover copy of it from Amazon. Kees Teszelszky is the editor of volume 3, and he also contributed two articles to it.

Amazon's "About the Author" section mentions the following: "Kees Teszelszky is a Research Fellow at the Eotvos Lorand University of Budapest and Temporary Lecturer at the University of Amsterdam. He graduated from Leiden and Amsterdam, and obtained his PhD in Groningen (2006). His publications include Az ismeretlen korona. Jelentesek, szimbolumok es nemzeti identitas [The Unknown Crown: Meanings, Symbols and National Identity] (2009)."

With someone like Kees Teszelszky among Thomas Eshuis's followers one can only argue that Thomas made fraudulent claims at ResearchGate or anywhere else concerning his bona fides by making shit up that supports one's claims and ignores information that contradict them. There's an expression for that defect: Confirmation bias. Whether we admit or not, all of us fall into that trap to some extent or another. Nevets did so more frequently and, in seeing stuff he quoted as supporting his stance when in fact it was either irrelevant or actually contradicted it, suffered from that defect more than anyone else during the ten days he lasted here. I warned him about it here, and here, alas to no avail.

I dug all these details out before I discovered that Nevets was given the heave-ho about three minutes after submitting my previous post about this kerfuffle, so I didn't bother writing it up, but since we are still chewing on the same cud I thought I'd add my to it now.

Whether Nevets was a troll or not isn’t really important anymore. I do, however, contend that it’s possible to be a troll on top of a mean little fuck too stupid to know how stupid he was.

I did not expect anything per se. It was a trivial troll that started it all. :cheers:

Trivial troll and her/his feeders. The usual setup. What else is new?
